Volkswagen to Produce XL1 1-Liter Diesel Hybrid
Volkswagen is to put into production one of the most exotic vehicles ever to carry the German group's badge - a two-seater with many features normally only seen on concept cars at motor shows.
VW will start making the hybrid XL1, which burns less than one liter of diesel per 100 kilometers, has gullwing doors, enclosed rear wheels, and camera-based mirrors, in the first half of the year, it said on Thursday.
It did not give a price - analysts have pegged the XL1 at 30,000-50,000 euros ($40,000-$67,000) - nor how many it will make. VW has permission to produce up to 1,000 annually.
